My favorite so far is

The Dead Texan - S/T

the new ones by Stereolab, Mouse On Mars and Sonic Youth are
hovering around in the distance as well

In no particular order

Kids fill the floor-Freescha
Talkie Walkie-Air
The Soundings-Blue States
Out of Nothing-Embrace

but to be honest the best albums I heard this year were
released before 2004 and they were

Technicolour/Di Go Pop - Disco Inferno
#1- Crunch

and the biggest disapointment was Codename Dustsucker by
Bark Psychosis, which I thought was going to be wonderful
and ended up being very average.

Apparently Hip Hop is music enough to be voted the number
one album of the year on an IDM messageboard.

Because I've been totally addicted to Metalface lately I'm
happy to say Madvillainy was my favourite album of 2004.
Just in time though, I've been getting into Sung Tongs by
Animal Collective.

Ok, I have to update my two bits since I have heard a couple
of albums since my last post. It's a TIE between Arcade
Fire's "Funeral" and The Fiery Furnaces "Blueberry Boat". I
couldn't live without either one of those records.
